Ben Johnson's Liverpool Cityscape 2008 and the World Panorama Series

The artist Ben Johnson working on a canvas with a panoramic view of Liverpool from the river

24 May 2008 - 2 November 2008

Famous city landmarks were reproduced in amazing detail in this huge architectural panorama.

The monumental painting joined Johnson's series of panoramas of Zürich, Jerusalem and Hong Kong and paintings representing the Rookery in Chicago and the Louvre in Paris.

This exhibition also included historical views of Liverpool, demonstrating the long tradition into which the new cityscape fits.

The Liverpool Cityscape, which is part of the Walker Art Gallery's permanent collection, is now on display in the Skylight gallery at the Museum of Liverpool.
